mesne assignments, to Richards, Boggs & King,
1110., Chicago, 11]., a corporation of Delaware
‘Application May 3, 1937, Serial No. 140,437
8 Claims. _(Cl. 2-84)
The present invention relates generally to more particularly defined by claims at the con
, sheet formed articles. More particularly the in
clusion hereof.
vention relates to that type of article which is
In the drawing which accompanies and forms
formed of two or more adjoining sheets of trans
a part of this speci?cation or disclosure ‘and in
5 parent waterproof materi; such, for example. which like numerals of reference denote corre
as “Plio?lm” and has th, contiguous margins of sponding parts throughout the several views:
the sheets arranged in lapped relation and se
cured together by way of a channel type textile
fabric binding which extends around and length
10 wise of the lapped margins of the sheets and is
secured in place by way of stitching between the
side portions thereof and the lapped margins.
One object of the invention is to provide a
sheet formed article of this type which is more
15 durable and practical than, and has certain ,ad
vantages over, previously designed articles of the
same general character by reason of the fact that
it embodies a channel. type reinforcing strip
which extends lengthwise of, and encases, the
20 textile fabric binding and is secured in place by
the stitching.
’
'
Another object of the invention is to provide
a sheet formed articlegof the last mentioned
character in which' the reinforcing strip is
25 formed of the same material as the sheets and
serves not only as a reinforcing instrumentality
but also to protect‘ the textile fabric binding and
prevent the latter from becoming soiled or
frayed.
I20
'
A further object of the invention is to provide
an article ofthe type and character under con
sideration in which the channel type reinforcing
strip embodies along the side portions thereof
inner extensions which are folded inwards be—
25 tween the inner faces of the side portions of the
textile fabric bin-ding and the outer face portions
of the lapped margins of the sheets and are so
secured in place by way of the stitching that they
form a substantially water-tight joint around
4'.) the lapped margins of the sheets.
A still further object of the invention is to
provide a sheet formed article of the aforemen
tioned type which is generally of new and im
proved construction and in which the textile
I 3 fabric binding and the channel type reinforcing
strip are formed of suchlength that they project
beyond the ends of the lapped margins of the
sheets and form extension or‘ string-like elements
for tying purposes.
»
Other objects of the invention and the various
advantages and characteristics of the present
sheet formed article will be apparent from a con
sideration of the following detailed description.
The invention consists in the several novel
55 features which are hereinafter set forth and are
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a sheet formed
article embodying the invention;
Figure 2 is an enlarged transverse sectional
view taken on the line ‘2--2 of Figure 1 and illus
trating the manner in which the channel type
reinforcing strip extends around and is secured

Figure 3 is an enlarged transverse sectional
view taken on the line 3--3 of Figure 1 and illus
trating the manner in which the end portions
of the reinforcing-strip and binding, that is, the
portions which project beyond the ends of the
lapped margins of ‘the adjoining sheets of the
article, coact and are secured together to form
extension or string-like elements for tying pur
poses.

.
The invention is shown by way of example in
connection with a combined rain cape and hood.
The latter, as shown in Figure 1 of the drawing,
comprises a cape 4 and a hood 5.. The cape is
adapted when in use to encircle and protect
against rain, sleet or snow the wearer's shoulders
and body and is formed of a thin transparent .
sheet 6 of “Pliofilm.” The latter is a rubber hy
drohalide°and is characterized by the fact that
it is. water proof and comparatively tough and
durable. It is further characterized by the fact
that it is light in weight and stretchable to a
slight extent. The front margins of the cape
are folded inwards, as shown in Figure 1. They
are held in place by means of stitching ‘i and
are adapted to overlap one another when the
cape is in its operative position. The cape has a 40
reinforced bottom margin 8 and embodies a
U-shaped neck encircling top margin 9. The
hood 5 consists of a pair of sides Ill and is formed
of the same material as the cape lythat is, "Plio
film". It is adapted when worn to protect the
wearer's head and has a U-shaped bottom mar
gin II. The latter is folded upwards and is
positioned in lapped relation with the necl':v en
circling margin 9 of the cape.
The lapped margins of the hood and cape are
secured together by means of a binding l2, a
reinforcing strip I 3,.and stitching I 4. The bind
ing is formed of textile fabric and is longitudinally
and centrally folded so that it is channel shaped.
It extends around the lapped margins of the 55

hood and cape and is secured to the latter by
way of the stitching ll which extends longitudi
nally of and passes through the side portions of
the binding'and said lapped margins of the hood
paratively stiff and hence readily retain their
position when they are tied in place.
Whereas the invention has been described in
connection with a combined rain cape and hood
and cape. The side portions of the binding
embody inner extensions I! which are folded in
it is to be understood that it may be embodied in
other articles which are formed of "Pliofllm” type
wards into lapped relation with the inner faces of
said side portions of the binding. The extensions
tion. It is also to be understood that the inven
tion is not to be restricted to the details set forth,
I! are substantially the same in width as the side
portions of the binding and make the binding of
double thickness as far as the latter’s side por
tions are concerned. The binding by reason of
the fact that it is formedof textile fabric and ex
tends around and lengthwise of the lapped mar
gins 9 and l I not only reinforces the margins and
prevents lengthwise stretch of the latter but also
sheets having margins‘ thereof in lapped rela
since these may be modi?ed within the scope of
the appended claims, without departing from the
spirit and scope of the invention.
Having thus described the invention, what I
claim as new and desire to secure by Letters
15
Patent is:
1. An article of manufacture, comprising a pair
of sheets having certain margins thereof in lapped
relation,- a centrally and longitudinally folded
covers the edges of the lapped margins and pre
vents them from splitting or injuring the wearer binding extending lengthwise of and around the
of, or any person handling, the combined rain lapped margins of the sheets, a channel type strip 20
cape and hood. The reinforcing strip l3 serves of comparatively thin highly flexible waterproof
to reinforce the textile fabric binding l2 and also» material extending lengthwise of and around the
protect the latter from becoming soiled or frayed.
It is transparent and is preferably formed of
“Pliofllm”, that is, the same material as the
cape and hood. As shown in Figure 2, the strip
is folded longitudinally and centrally so that it
is of channel type design, and extends lengthwise
of and around the binding l2. The side por
tions of the strip are the same in width as, and
30 completely over, the side portions of the binding
and embody inner extensions 16.
The latter are
folded inwardly into lapped relation with the
infolded inner extensions l5 of the side portions of
the binding and fit between the inner faces of
said extensions and the outer faces of the lapped
margins 9 and II of the cape and hood. The
stitching I4, as shown in Figure 2, extends
through the side portions and the infolded ex
tensions of the “Piio?lm” reinforcing strip H as
well as the side portions and the inner extensions
'of the textile fabric binding I2 and the lapped
margins 9 and I l of the cape and hood and serves
to hold the reinforcing strip and binding together
and in place around the lapped margins. The
central portion of the "Pliofllm" reinforcing strip
I3 overlies the central portion of the binding 12
and together with the infolded extensions l6 and
the side portions completely surrounds the binding
and forms a substantially watertight joint
around the lapped margins 9 and II. Because
the binding is completely encased by the “P110
?lm” reinforcing strip it cannot become soiled
or stretch as a result of absorption of moisture.
Furthermore it is protected against becoming
binding and having infolded extensions on the
side portions thereof ?tting between the inner
faces of the side portions of the binding and the
outer faces of the lapped margins of the sheets,
and means for securing the strip and binding in
place and in connected relation with said lapped
margins.
